SkyWatch ~ Another Sunrise, what else?

I do not apologise for the quality of this photo. I was janked
out of a deep sleep to the sight of this reflection on my western
window having entered my room through the matching eastern
window.
*
Needless to say, I levitated already with camera in hand and
was outside like a shot!
*

*
I dashed along the whole front of the house and half way into
the garden to get a clearer view . . . ta dah!
*

*
Not bad at all as far as colour goes, so I snapped another as the
light changed, then, frozen through in my nighty and chilled to
the bone with dew-wet feet half way up my legs, I cold footed
it back into my nice warm bed. All for what I hear you ask?
Well, just to show you the sunrise two mornings ago. Devotion
to duty that's what!

    I wanted to let you know that I appreciated your minority opinion on my crock pot question of a few weeks ago, and have scheduled a post (with an answer to you) for tomorrow morning, 4 AM my time (US Mountain Time). You will be able to see it on the blog Recipes for Ben. Thank you so much for your input--I enjoyed your comment immensely!
